Home At Last!

Home at last! And it is cold! Sadie and I are cuddled up in the bed because it was 42 degrees inside the cabin when we got here. It's finally warm enough to put my hands out of the covers to type, but only just barely. I would estimate it's in the fifties now. Sadie is toasty warm, bundled under the sheet, blanket, quilt and then an additional three fleece throws, but I have always been a wimp when it comes to cold and I am still chilly (I used to wear sweats and a sweatshirt when I was lifeguarding and it was in the nineties).

I was planning on blogging this entire week, but when we arrived at the hotel I was unpleasantly surprised to find that they were charging $9.99 a day for internet access. While I was actually tempted several times to insert my credit card number in the little spot that kept coming up when I'd check to see if there was, by some wonderful development, free internet, I ended up being too tired to actually do it, which saved us at least $30. Now I have some catching up to do! I have a few fun, busy days coming up responding to comments and catching up on the blogs and forums during nap time.

Sadie, in an amazing feat of endurance stayed awake for seven of the eight hours that it took to drive home from the memorial service. She didn't cry at all, but was relieved when we finally got home and ran around Nani and Grumpa's house checking on her toys to make sure that they were all still there.

Time to get some sleep! It's so good to be home, even when home is as cold as an icicle!

And since I've started typing it is starting to get warm in here! Apparently the space heater works as something other than a door stop.

  1. Glad to hear all is well; I had started to get a little worried, as you are such a faithful blogger (unlike I...)



I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
